TV struck by lightning

My Sharp 32C231 was struck by lightning. There was no burning smell.
There is no response what-so-ever when the power button is pressed. I was in another room when it happened, so I do not know for sure if there was a sound or not.
Fixable...or trash?

Looks like the flyback (high voltage transformer and probably the majority of the power board is kaput. It would be cheaper and probably worth your while to invest in a new TV rather than try to fix this one..

Lightning struck causing tv to not power on. No light, no nothing. Any way to find out if it's the power supply or main board? Fairly easy to repair?


I worked in a tv shop for many years...can be as simple as a fuse to literally handfuls of componenets or a fried board ( the actual board can swell up or burn) Homeowners renters insurance may cover it.

Need a downloadable manual for this piece. Lightning struck house now have a fried part...


What model TV is it from ? The Powers Supply schematics are usually found in the TV service manuals. The information in the service manuals is very limited and you most likely won't be able to get a full schematic of the PS.
Alternativly buy a replacement board. They seem to be widely available.

It may be the cost effective answer as service manuals are quite often, not cheap.

My boilder is struck by lightning and had burned plastic smell. then it stopped working. The power line seems to be fine, somewhere inside got struck. Any way this can be fixed?


You can change out all the heating elements and controls, but hard to say what lighning did without seeing and being there. Sounds like the control board got burnt and that was the smell you smelled, but I can't promise the element is good.

I have a 58'' HP Pavillion Projection screen TV. It was struck by lightning. the power cord is good. It will not turn on at all, no fans running, etc. What do you think I will have to fix?


As u have just said that it was struck by lightning the only way to get the TV back working is to replace burnt items on the moterboard .becouse lightning must have demaged some components on the power supply, if possible i would preffer a new power supply board

Sharp 32c231 volume too low


If you are using a cable box with this set, the problem may be in the box settings.
Try this:
open the settings menu on the box . You may have to select"more settings" or something like that title to find the audio selections.
Under the audio, you will find recording and viewing volume settings. put these to maximum and save.
Your volume should now be more than adequate.

Struck by lightning and won't power up


WOW!
Warranty voider there.
Hate to see a $1,000 TV go down the toilet.
If your lucky, you can try checking the fuses inside the TV.
The lightning may have taking out only your power supply board, shopjimmy.com may have replacements for about $100. But, I can't tell you for sure that will fix the problem.
You may have to take to a repair shop to find out for sure.
Good Luck

Someone please help


Good Day;

Two things normally happens after a L storm:1.) One must unplug TV for 5 minutes, then plug back in. 2.) Main glass fuse out, will be near a/c cord. 3.( Power regulator IC may be out. Try these first.

Good Luck!

TV was struck by lightning


If it was struck by lightning, the surge would completely fry the insides of your TV. Your TV probably won't work anymore and you may have to consider replacing it. Some TVs have accident warranties so something like this could be protected, but if not, you will have to purchase a new one.
